S’mores Ice Cream Bars

S'mores Ice Cream Bars

Summatime! It’s my favorite time of year. I love it more than Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s Eve combined.

I live for these long summer days filled with endless sunshine. A lot of people complain about the heat, but I love it.

The hotter the day, the more ice cream and frozen treats I can eat. Why have one s’mores ice cream bar when you can have two, or three, or four?!

Tasting all sorts of different foods that I normally didn’t

Nectarine Puff Pastry Tarts

Nectarine Puff Pastry with Vanilla Bean Cream Cheese

My husband claims these nectarine puff pastry tarts tastes like a better Toaster Strudel. At first I was disappointed and a bit offended. How could these tarts made with fresh fruit be compared to that thing? First of all, I’m not the biggest fan of Toaster Strudel. Growing up, I was a Pop-Tarts fiend. And

Chocolate Dipped Funfetti Ice Cream Bars

Chocolate Dipped Funfetti Ice Cream Bars

I remember the first time I had a Nestle Ice Cream Crunch Bar. Oh man, those were good. Then I moved on to Dove Ice Cream Bars. Even better. And then, I was introduced to Magnum Ice Cream Bars. Mind blown. Inspired by my favorite ice cream bars, I introduce you to a super easy
